Thread Box:
stealing and tagging?
Thread started by tortuga_veloce at 03.15.09 - 11:21 am

seriously, what has happened on our rides? tagging has been a problem for some time, and I am adamantly against destruction/theft of property for this reason:

tagging hurts local businesses and makes them call the cops

and of course, stealing from other Ridazz? well, i dont think i need to say more. this shit's gotta stop. it's only possible for so long to let everyone "have fun in their own way," because someone's idea of fun is destroying someone else's.

i'm sad to hear it's come to this, but please people,

free-lock your bikes,
carry your bags, and
don't leave expensive lights on your bikes.

maybe we can have a bag-check at the trailer. if i was a thief, i wouldnt try to steal within 6 feet of big bike dan.

reply


a bag check? seriously? why not personally take care of your own shit rather than leave it up to someone else? or are you just looking for someone else (other than youself) to blame when your stuff goes missing?

i think a lot of people, including myself let our guards down about how secure our stuff was around our friends. it was ok for a time, but everyone should be on notice. your shit aint safe.

and it's ok to blame the thieves, as long as you are prepared to do something about it.

there need to be an understaning for the ecomonic situation and realize that its only gonna get worse. so the besthing to do is build a cyclist community free from Elitism. to look after each other.
and for all those theft. just remember burglars get burgled as well. and lock ur shit.

03.15.09 - 12:06 pm

yeah, it's ridiculous how many people expect you to look out for their shit, with out even saying please!!!
right at the beginning of the nerd ride a group of about five show up and park their bikes next to where i was standing, right after they disappeared. like if i had the obligation to take care of their shit. so when "rolling out" came i jumped on my shit and left and those five where nowhere to be seen. so five expensive bikes where left unlocked and unattended, the you wonder why stuff goes missing.

I was locking up outside of a market and somebody asked my "why?"
Well unfortnuately the answer is that this isn't 2006. Shit's changed and it should be normal habbit to lock up a bike no matter who is around.
Its not a matter of trust.
Its a matter of anything can happen.

better to have a million fake personalities than your one bad one.

and as far as watching our stuff, this did used to be a hippy love fest, and people made poor decisions without consequence. well, now there are consequences. listen to tyler and lock your shit.

as far as tagging, we need to cut this shit off at the head, before we get a bad name. we're only able to get away with this as long as we do no harm. this bad behavior is putting our good times in serious jeopardy.

@tortuga, lock your own shit up.

Telling the "organizers" to tell the "ridazz" to lock up their own shit?

No, you tell your friends to lock their shit, and I will tell my friends to lock up their shit.

We watch out for each other, period. If there are strangers hanging around, be wary. That's not being elitist, it's being protective of your community.

Theft has always been a problem, it's not new. It's not the economy, it's human fucking nature. I had my bike stolen on Midnight Ridazz in 2006! On my birthday. I was drunk, and distracted. It happens, it will happen again. So it's well within our duty to watch out for our own, and that's how we do it, and should continue to do it.

I'm not whining or complaining, i realize it was my fault and all, and almost more significantly i've been in this scene for two and half years without getting ANYTHING stolen except for a couple spoke cards, BUT:

I left my pannier in mikey's room last night, full of ONLY people i knew, and it disappeared in less than an hour. That's fucked up. But it's not all that surprising. That's just the way things are.

so let me be one of many examples to ya'll - lock your bike and don't let your bag out of your sight!

hang onto all ur shit. that means, don't leave ur bag on the ground somewhere, don't leave ur bike locked up and walk away bc theres a lot more to steal off ur bike other than just wheels and frame etc. if i was a thief i'd be stealing handle bars and saddles.


everyone feels like they can trust their fellow "cyclist". no, you can't.


and please, don't blame the economy. blame the economy when people are stealing food and necessities. when fools steal ur bike or wheels or light etc, it just means that you have some fly shit and it was left open for an easy grab.

what do you mean by bag check?

check ur bag where?

someones gonna drive around a truck? or someones gonna haul around a trailer with all ur shit? or is everyone supposed to put all their shit in a pile when u make a stop and some designated person is supposed to look after ur crap?

half of those guys that steal and tag probably hear about these rides via word of mouth. you'd expect with everyone over-preaching safety and F.U.N. on the forums it should be safe.

the only solution is to check for your own shit, trust no-one but your circle, and conduct yourself within your own standards. theres a big difference between not trusting one and showing distrust towards another. exercise common sense.

i wouldn't leave my bag alone ANYWHERE, let alone an MR ride. you guys are too trusting, and so you be victimized. i've learned my lesson.

Having a bag check in sounds like a lot of work and too much responsibility for a few people. I wouldn't want that responsibilty maybe some kind soul will..... I still wouldn't feel safe because I never feel safe leaving my shit.

Face it we never thought it would come to this, but our belongings are not safe. Its an open invite ride and low life thieves are on the ride. When they are caught they get an old school beat down, but until then everyone will just have to watch their shit.... watch yo shit!!

I'd leave my bike sitting alone on a sidewalk downtown before I would leave it unattended on a ride. The rides are full of people willing to steal.

On almost every ride I see a large circle of kids (pretty much the same kids every time) who don't talk to anyone outside their circle. They stand around and smoke and tag and wait for us to be lazy and they attack.

I bet they think they are really smart getting away with all their bullshit right under our noses.

Its time for people to stop paying attention to just their own shit and start really trying to catch some of these fuckers in the act. If you stop for a second and look around at the stops you can see it all very clearly.

There's two groups now on the ride the THE SHEEP and THE WOLVES.

We need a wolf that looks like a sheep.

Start saying hello to very kid on the ride you haven't seen before. Be nice but let them know that you know they are there. It tends to make them a little less comfortable when they are trying to find a mark.

And to all you idiots that claim to be ready to throw a beat-down on someone just be careful. You talk a lot of shit but I bet 5 of them could pop your squishy balls in 10 seconds.

Just try it.

personly i dont really care if someone is tagging, and i dont really care if someone is stealing from vons or some shit like that. now if there stealing someone elses perosonal property tHAT IS REALLY FUCKED UP. or if they are stealing from some independent store that is fucked.

There is a great appreciation of street art on midnight ridazz.
And a serious distrust of corporations and rules that are created for the benefit of the ownership society.

So tagging billboards and stealing from corporations is not something that a lot of people here lose a lot of sleep about in the wide world of crimes and injustice.

What people DO care about is how people act when they are representing midnight ridazz.

Most everybody agrees that stealing from individuals sucks.

But what some people don't understand is that when they leave a negative impact on the communities we pass through it reflects on all of us. If we stop at a store and people start tagging, stealing, and leaving trash it reflects negatively on our group.

We get away with bending lots of rules. But if people start seeing a wake of destruction in our path, they arn't going to be too welcoming to us, and be quick to call the cops and complain when they get annoyed. Things will be less fun.

I'm not gonna make moral judgements against people who steal from corporations or feel a need to make a mark in/on the world. But, be a big boy or girl and do that shit on your own time, not when you are hiding in the anonymity of our group and gambling with OUR social capital.

but seriously city biking and street art go hand and hand

i disagree. there are many artists that ride with us, yes, but the only common thing the two share is this site being hosted on 50mm webspace.

i do disagree RBI
in the sense that we are all fighting for space.
there is a reason why fixie culture/ street cycling culture appeals to a lot of people that are into street art, and its not just because its the easiest way to get around town and get up.
there are some overlapping sensibilities there.

just as OUR streets are dominated by cars
OUR visual landscape is dominated by corporate advertising.

its not like cycling is the 5th pillar of hip hop ... but there is a correlation there between bikes and graf.

I think cycling came way before skateboarding. Like a hundred years or so.

the key thing to remember is that when on a social ride you will in counter the people of many different kinds

if you dont want to see people that are going piss you off then go on non social ride

and if any thing use your head to communicate with people

Fuck Yeah coldcut, Lascaux cave paintings!

There has been Graffiti, found in ancient egyptian sites, in Roman bathrooms (typical br graf too, just as racist and ignorant as the crap you see in public br's today), Names carved, and get this painted, onto walls in Pompeii, and all kinds of other places.
Sure it's nothing new, what is new is the official response to it, and we dont' need "official response" to MR in any way.

Fun Police:
1) Person or group of people who make others stop having fun for whatever reason, usually out of jealousy or spite, but sometimes because said fun is against the law.

from urban dictionary.
in this case I was referring to those types who drive cars with lightbars on the roof and do not approve.

oh and coldcut, people do bitch about tagging on cmob, although more often than not they don't because most of it is chalk.

i used to live next door to the "crank mob" albertsons, and i used to talk to the night manager about crank mob. we scared the shit out of him every time we came in, but he always appreciated that people stayed afterwards to clean, and that people were willing to pay for stolen merchandise.

if people started tagging on the walls, i'm sure we'd get shut down pretty quick, and that the cops would be tailing us non-stop. remember kids, police are allocated to areas not based on the murder rate, but on dollars of property loss or damage.

more tagging=more cops

but we cant force anyone to obey the law. we can only put it out there and hope they see things our way. if you see someone tagging in your neighborhood, just let him know the homie works here and is going to have to scrub the wall now.

tell them to write it on the sidewalk where it doesnt hurt anybody. we're all a part of the communities we ride in. i would be just as upset to see someone tagging my neighborhood liquor store as my own house.

i guess there is a delicate balance between watching out for the group's interest and acting as the "Fun Police".

Most of us have no interest in playing cop/babysitter but when people are doing shit that could easily have a negative impact on the group: ie. wild wheelies, throwing bottles, wrecking shit etc. (as rare as those things are) it's incumbent upon those of us that care to remind people that their actions reflect the group.

people do lots of stupid shit in a mob, because they know they can get away with it. and its important to clue newer/ dumber/ drunker people that thats not the purpose of MR.

MR works because enough of us know the deal and project that.
Usually we don;t need to say anything ... but when lots of new people join us we may need to educate. Every spring and summer gets crazy we should expect big numbers of new people again this year.
